Welcome to our stop on the Cinder by Marissa Meyer paperback blog tour! During this week long tour, you can find out more about characters from both Cinder and the upcoming sequel Scarlet, which comes out February 5th. Guys, you don’t have to wait much longer! And speaking of Scarlet, you can learn more about her as she happens to be our character for the tour. Both Adrienne and I loved her sweet and sassy personality. So check out her bio and enter for a chance to win the new paperback edition of Cinder!
Scarlet Benoit inherited a lot from the grandmother who raised her: the stubbornness of a mule, the temper of a firecracker, and the staunch determination to think for herself, even when it comes to the worldwide prejudices surrounding the Lunars.
So when Scarlet’s grandmother goes missing from their small family farm, Scarlet refuses to listen to the local police or townspeople who are sure the kooky old woman simply wandered off into the sunset. Help comes from the most unlikely places, though—first in the ravings of her own drunkard father, and then from Wolf, a city transplant turned street fighter. He may be handsome and, at times, painfully awkward, but Scarlet suspects he’s the last person she should trust. The challenge, though, will be convincing her heart of the same thing.
Thanks to our buds at Macmillan, we have a giveaway of the paperback version of Cinder! This is a book both Kat and I heavily endorse. So if you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, this must be a sign!
Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . .
Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.
